Project Description

The aim of the GRACE (Gender And Cultures of Equality) project is to systematically investigate the cultural production of gender (in)equalities within Europe. Emerging out of and extending the success of GEMMA, the Erasmus Mundus ‘Masters of Excellence’ in Women’s and Gender Studies - the “representative [programme] at European level in tuning common curricula in gender studies” [O1]- the central objective of GRACE is to become the programme of reference for innovative interdisciplinary doctoral training for early career researchers. In doing so we not only fulfil a core commitment of Horizon 2020, namely “the promotion of gender equality in research and innovation”[1], but also treat Horizon 2020 itself as a material site for investigating, testing and producing cultures of equality in Europe. By ‘gender’ we mean both ideologies and embodied practices through which femininities, masculinities, transgender and Queer subjectivities are produced and the relations between people who occupy differently gendered subject positions, recognizing that these subject positions and subjectivities are mutually shaped by sexuality, race/ethnicity, nationality, class, disability and age.
